Bikes can be hired and delivered from Relax Rentals in Beziers.
They need notice and a reasonable rental period to accommodate delivery this far. You can also hire bikes and take a tour from their site along the Canal du Midi. - https://www.relaxbiketours.com
Bowling and Indoor Swimming
On the way into Narbonne there is a bowling alley, indoor swimming and a cinema situated near the large hypermarket.
For something a little different, drive an hour to this beautiful area, park and catch a coach further up the Herault River and Canoe the 12km back to base. Plan to spend 4-6 hours, take a picnic and stop to swim wherever you want. We loved this idyllic day!

The French are very relaxed about walking, and it seems perfectly normal to walk through vineyards and fields as long as you stick to paths and are respectful.
Best times for walking are in the early morning and late afternoon as it will not be as hot at these times! Enjoy a stroll through the vineyards surrounding the villas and wander back through the town - stopping off at the cave to pick up some wine en route!
There are also longer walks including a walk over the hills you can see from the balcony which will give you a great view of the village and the surrounding area!

Exciting experience, not for the feint hearted! About 45 minutes drive toward the Pyrenees. We have personally tried this, had great fun and felt well looked after.
This is expected in this region and we recommend you stop and taste whilst travelling around rather than buy from supermarkets, the ‘Vente des Vins’ are welcoming of holiday makers. We of course strongly recommend our village Cave.
Terra Vinea - Wine tours and tastings.
Cellars containing hundreds of oak barrels, a small underground lake, a sound and light show, the reconstruction of a former gypsum quarry and a Gallo-Roman villa.
